    Yeah, I'm lucky that JD's back is JUST long enough for the 17.5" UK bench made saddles. Barely. I guess we'll find out once I start consistently riding in my new Fairfax monoflap rather than a...

    There's a Kent & Masters S Series 17.5" with a wide bar in it at Gift Horse right now. It's marked MW on the tag - but it's wrong. I had it this week for trial and it's in really good shape, the seat...

    About to send a Fairfax mono flap back to Fine Used Saddles as it's just a bit too small for me. It might be what you need although you would probably need to get a XW or XXW bar for it. The flap is...

    Indeed. We've also been doing a lot of lateral work with the transitions as well as lengthening and shortening as TickleFight describes. He's come a long way in just 3 months.

    Of course it helps...

    I have a leggy narrow croup high QH - we're learning dressage together right now. Long and low is our enemy for getting him to move uphill, he can get nice and round but he's on the forehand by...

    Can you try googling the horse's show name to find unrecognized results? I know for most of our local reining shows they post the results online as PDF files and if you google the horse or rider name...

    I have one on trial from Fine Used Saddles right now. It's everything Patricia said it was and I'm excited to ride in it tomorrow. Hopefully it's the end of my search.

    Until the coyotes or coons go after them and then all bets are off. I've lost hens to coons, coyotes, hawks, eagles, and dogs. It's best to keep them secure at least some of the time.

    A hose and spray nozzle. They always seem to be in short supply.

    I've never had a problem with getting meds from Abler. They arrive as expected each time.

    Seriously though, I'd also kill the Acti-Flex since it's a change in diet that seems to possibly...

    Editing because I looked up the Acti Flex (it's 3000 mg MSM per oz). I'd take her off of it and see what happens. If she's sensitive to MSM it could have been building up in her system. Give it 5-7...

    Chicamuxen - I, and her former owner (another COTHer) have both worked with her. She can be handled by the farrier, the vet, and me for short periods of time (she gets her muzzle on and off every day...

    Thank you everyone - I didn't mean to abandon this thread.

    Thanks to a change in hay, some bute, and some blue pop rocks, Mo is doing very well. She even showed off her funny little trot today....

    Not over reacting at all. My gelding will be six in a month. Last fall he popped one high on the inside of his right hind. I called the vet, did conservative rest and rehab, and then ended up doing...

    It's trained and looks like that when it's wrong. If it's trained right then the collection and balance required leads to the horse wanting to step back at the end. Part of that is anticipation as...

    It works. Reining trainers do a lot of backing up both as a correction and for strength building and improving the sliding stop. A sliding stop is really a backwards maneuver - if you do it right the...

    Take Jay, above, up on her offer. She's sent me two saddles so far and both are excellent fits on my horse. I'm playing Goldilocks, but at least now I'm worrying about what works for me, not what...

    Newbie question - must I braid for recognized shows? My reiner cum dressage pony has a midlength natural mane and I've no desire to pull/cut it. Or can you do big buttons with a 12" mane?

    I use only sulfate free shampoos on my horse - Natures Gate usually. Partly because I'm allergic to them, but also because sulfates strip natural oils from the hair. It's more expensive than ivory,...

    Off. I'm in WA and keep mine at home. That said, I usually leave a breakaway halter on the mini mule if I'm gone more than a few days. She's hard to catch and I want to make it easy if someone needs...

    I think you need to put in a heated tank. I grew up in MN and we kept horses in an old concrete block bank barn. The heated tank was filled with a hose as needed - the hose bib was insulated and...

    White gold. I like the mellow look of it. I've worn my wedding band (no stones) daily for nearly 11 years and it doesn't look any worse for wear. I think the color has mellowed a bit over time, but...

    Adding sand in a sacrifice paddock?

    We have gravel sacrifice paddocks off each of our stalls and my gelding and mini mule have 24/7 access to them. This winter has been tough on Mo (she's previously foundered) with a round of too...

    I test rode one on my QH. I liked the twist but the seat was too wide for me.
